2014 Peach Festival kicks off with Jubilee (updated with photos)By Emily Etheredge Published 7:33pm Friday, June 27, 2014
Savannah and Ginger Kemp drove up to the 2014 Peach Jam Jubilee on Friday in their bright-blue clothing boutique.
“We are a mobile boutique on wheels,” Savannah Kemp said. “If you can’t come to us, we will come to you.”
The mother-daughter duo drove from Birmingham to set up their Wink Mobile Boutique at the Jubilee, which was held from 5-11 p.m. at Clanton City Park.
The Chilton County Chamber of Commerce sponsors the annual event featuring three bands, a $1,000 giveaway, food, arts and crafts vendors.
Kemp said this is the third festival in Alabama Wink Boutique has been to and she was enjoying it so far.
“We were excited to come to the Peach Jubilee,” Kemp said.
Kemp said the enjoyable part about owning a boutique on wheels is the accessibility to travel around.
“We sell to any age and nothing in our boutique is over $100,” Kemp said. “We do house parties and can go anywhere. We offer clothing and accessories to women who might not have the time to go shopping in a store.”
Ashley Lemsky also drove to the Jubilee from Birmingham after hearing about the Peach Festival from co-workers in Calera.
“This is our first Peach Jam,” Lemsky said. “We are having a lot of fun and didn’t really know what to expect, but we have enjoyed it so far.”
Lemsky stood beside her niece, Bailee Wessen, 6, who hopped up to pose in a Mahindra Tractor from Peach Automotive.
“She is having a great time,” Lemsky said about Wessen.
Standing a few feet away from vendors selling peaches, Lemsky said she would more than likely buy a basket before leaving.
“That is one thing I am hoping to buy before I leave is some peaches,” Lemsky said.
Local praise band ‘Elevate’ performed at 6:30 p.m. followed by Southern Pride at 7:30 p.m. and Valley Road Bluegrass at 8:30 p.m.
